Preview CSK v/s SRH
After having played the South Indian derby number one with Bangaluru and winning it easily, the Chennai Super Kings is ready for South Indian derby number 2 vs a struggling Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL 2021.
CSK looks mighty strong and in great momentum. One expects Moeen Ali to be back in the team after missing out previous game due to a niggle. Ambati Rayudu looked injured in his legs , hence can be rested . Batting looks in momentum . 1st game in Delhi , hence the bowling combination will be decided from the pitch conditions. Jadeja after his sensational match vs RCB will be one to watch out for.
Preview CSK v/s SRH Probable XI
Duplessis, Gaekwad , Moeen , Raina , Rayudu , Jadeja , Dhoni , Sam Curran , Shardul , Deepak Chahar , Ngidi / Imran Tahir
Sunrisers Hyderabad has a lot to improve in their batting. Warner is not in rhythm and the middle order looks extremely mediocre. In the last game, no single player in the middle could provide a partnership or support for Williamson , whose valiant knock went in vain . There is a possibility that they may recall back Manish Pandey instead of an out of touch Kedar Jadhav .
The bowling looks in better shape and one hopes that Bhuvneswar Kumar is back in the XI after staying out of the last game due to a niggle .
Preview CSK v/s SRH Probable XI :
Warner , Bairstow , Williamson , Manish Pandey , Vijay Shankar , Abhishek Sharma , Rashid Khan , Bhuvneswar Kumar, J Suchith , S. Kaul , Khaleel Ahmed .
With the first match being played in Delhi, the decision at the toss will be decided after the pitch conditions are studied by both teams. However going by recent trends, Delhi offers slowish surfaces and hence if the dew factor is minimal, teams may prefer batting first .
CSK clear favourites in the match. SRH will look to improve their middle-order batting to enhance their chances. A batting first option will suit SRH more as their chasing capacity appears to be limited with only two batters performing well.
